While I was in The Marine Corps was having trouble with the firing mech. When you pulled the trigger all four rockets would fire. some Marines were injured.

I shot a M202 Multi-flame weapon in 1975 at Quantico during training. We called it the Multi-flame weapon and you could fire 1 or all 4 pods at once.
